An Old Harvest Hello and WE HAVE A WINNER

Sometimes, old is good. The feel of old, worn & faded jeans on a cool fall morning, those old comfy sneakers - how nice they feel on my feet after a work week of high heels, or just the old familiarity of home...all of these can feel mighty good at times. The same is true with a favorite old stamp sets. The set I used for this card is really old...I can't even really tell you when it came out or when it retired, but I really do love the images that it contains. Every year about this time, I break it out and find good use of the cute images.

This year, I mounted the images that I masked to gather them all in one scene, onto my new Top Note Bigz Die. I thought it made a nice mat for this fall scene. I kept the embellishments simple because of the 'full' image by using four scrapbook nails. For a complete supply list, scroll to the bottom of this post.

Now for the winner of the blog candy that I offered on Wednesday.

Lynn, I sent you an e-mail via SCS.
This a cute fall theme card. I really like the Top Note Bigz Die used for matting.

Wouldn't that card be so nice sitting on the kitchen windowsill - a wee splash of gorgeous homey warm colour and I love pumpkins!!
